When does "great offense" equal crappy defense?

    ESPN's ratings worse nightmare is a 6-3, boring field goal slug fest for 3 hours of prime time tv. (unless it's us losing of course!)
    People love offense and the rules in college football favor the offense.
    Maybe the real question is;
    When does "great defense" equal crappy television?

    See Michigan at Indiana, October 2, 2010. :lol:

    We are told that great defense trumps great offense.


    I want to see if its true on the other spectrum. How about Michigan vs LSU in the Outback bowl.

    LSU's passing offense vs the secondary of Michigan. Now there is a showdown that I would pay to laugh at it in person

    It's like watching an NBA game. They trade scores for a few hours then the last team with the ball wins. Some people like that sort of thing. I find it boring until the last 5 minutes.

    Typical scUM logic (or lack thereof)--keep all the good things + assume all the bad away = get a good result. In related news, they still think they deserved to win the Game in '06, if it weren't for Crable's helmet-to-helmet, having a pass defense with a pulse, etc.

    Toledo 60
    Northern Illinois 56

    997 yards of total offense and hundreds more on special teams returns...and it's not over yet.

    The 2011 Alamo Bowl, Washington versus Baylor.

    To discount Baylor's offense though, you'd have to say the entire Big 12 has no defense. I think Baylor's defense made Washington's offense look good though.

    There are some decent defenses in the conference. Texas has a solid D.
